    Good stuff indeed. A little off-topic but, I have been leery of the way “growth mindset” gets tossed around. Too often educators state that a student does not have a “growth mindset” as if it is the student’s responsibility to show up with one. You mention how we should live the mindset we want to see, but it is so much more effective when the entire institution embraces the potential of each student, in all subject areas. For me, the kid who says that he or she is terrible at math often feels that way about other areas of their academic and personal life as well.
